Our first meal in a Portuguese restaurant, I tried a fish dish served with sweet potato and banana flambe. Unusual combination of flavours and delicious. This came with rice, chips and a fried dish which when we asked about it was told it was polenta. Very delicate flavour. Plenty to eat and reasonable costs. We saw others eating what looked... More

Found this place by accident as we were wandering around looking for somewhere to have an evening meal. Friendly lady found us a seat outside which was most welcome as it was a very warm evening. The service was prompt, so nice to have a jug of water and basket of bread given without asking. We had starters, my husband... More

On our return trip to Jersey we had to come back to Manos. Fabulous food, great service! This really is worth a visit, as the food is so good. Beware, the Espetada's are so big that you won't need a starter, and will find that with the assortment of accompaniments you can't eat it all!

My friends took me to Mano's for a lovely dinner. I chose the Espetados had the fish ones, tuna, king prawn and scallop. It was fabulous. Good atmosphere, was a bit noisy because there were a few parties in that night, still had a great night

Mano's came recommended to us by a local while spending a long weekend in Jersey. The restaurant wasn't easy to find but keep looking as it is tucked in the corner of a square. Make sure you book in advance as the restaurants get booked up quickly for the weekends. The service is good and the staff were friendly. The... More

A typically Portuguese restaurant with traditional dishes as well as normal meat and fish a la carte. Service very friendly. Meal was very good and the wine was good value also.

Had a really nice meal here during a trip to jersey. The stuffed crab creole was lovely. We also tried an Espetada for the first time. We shared one as they come with so much meat and accompaniments - delicious!

It's been a few years since I've eaten in Manos. We were over in Jersey with friends so wanted to make sure they had a great meal. We turned up on a Friday evening without a reservation an were seated in a quiet corner. The service throughout was very good and very friendly. The food was excellent. Three out of... More
